Buy this cd and rest assured that your holiday music will be well rounded. No need to purchase anything else. The 50th Gold Anniversary Christmas Celebration cd is just that-it is a representation of his recording career of Christmas music with the exception of the 1969 Give Me Your Love For Christmas album.

This cd starts out with the original tunes released in 1958's Merry Christmas album, all arranged by Percy Faith. Johnny sounds clear as Silver Bell's ringing out on a quiet, snow-laided forest. Doesn't get much better than that!

Next up you'll find a song orignally recorded for Mercury in 1963-Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.

Moving on to 1986-from the Christmas Eve With Johnny Mathis album-you'll find two of his most popular Christmas recordings. One of these, It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas, made the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers top 25 Christmas Songs list. Also included in this timeframe of recordings is his beautiful rendition of Toyland. I think we can all relate to the time in our lives when YES, VIRGINIA, THERE REALLY IS A SANTA CLAUS and the world was perfect and we were young.

The cd then travels on to the year 2001 when Johnny recorded with Mannheim Steamroller on their Christmas Extraordinaire album The song is O' Tannebaum. It was once again released on their Christmas Celebration album in 2004.

Two more recordings from 2002 and The Christmas Album follow that up. They are I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm and Have A Holly Jolly Christmas, and both are toe tapping tunes!

And last, but certainly not least, is the 2006 duet with Bette Midler from her currently released Cool Yule cd. I think they sound great together and the song leaves you wanting more.

This album gets five stars from me because it's Johnny Mathis, it's Christmas (or winter) music, and every song is beautifully sung. However, be aware that this is not a collection of new recordings - these are all songs from previous Mathis Christmas collections. Some songs may have been remastered but nothing here was recorded specifically for inclusion on this CD. If you have many of the Mathis Christmas CD's then it is highly likely that you already own all of these songs. That said, if you're a new fan of the great Johnny Mathis and don't own all the previous releases this would be a wonderful place to start. I wish that Columbia/Legacy would release an all inclusive multi disc set containing all of Johnny's Christmas recordings (I'd suggest this as a project for Time/Life but they'd price it too high for the regular guy to afford). I don't believe that any artist has ever released more Christmas themed albums than Mathis and finally getting them all together in one collection would seem so obvious (especially since Columbia seems to repackage everything anyway). You can usually pick up this album new (or a gently used copy) at considerable savings so you can reward you ears without breaking the budget.

As a boomer growing up listening to Johnny Mathis every Christmas, this album hits the spot. It conjurs up warm memories of colored Christmas lights, tinsel and going to Midnight Mass. I give it 4 stars just for the nostalgia factor. Johnny's voice is as deep and mellow as ever, and he sings the old standards one hopes he would. Who really wants to hear Johnny sing "Mary Did You Know?" anyway? Definitely a great addition to any Christmas collection.

It's so interesting to listen Johnny Mathis voice from diferent times through these 50 years of his career. His choice, which is his privilege, has been a hit since he gives us a selected list of songs, so classy, not dropping in the usual Christmas songs of forever, but bringing us an elegant collection of beloved songs to make this Christmas a special one. A CD I enjoyed from beginning to end, with that final refreshing duet with Bette Midler, so perfect!!! WHAT A VOICE!!!

What a fitting way to celebrate Johnny's 50 years as a recording artist -- an Christmas anniversary cd with some the best and most loved Christmas recordings he's done through the years. All the favorites are here. Even the new duet with Better Midler is included, very cute and too short. Wish it had been a tad bit longer to hear how well their voices blend together. This is the only CD you'll need this Chrismas - when friends or family are over to trim the Christmas tree - or when you're by yourself wrapping gifts. Johnny is Christmas and nice to hear these beloved Christmas songs all in one place.

"... Fall on your knees
Oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine
Oh night when Christ was born
Oh night divine, Oh night
Oh night divine!" ~ O Holy Night ~
(Beautiful Words and Music by J.S. Dwight and A. Adam)

"To me Christmas is one of those magical things that I have been so lucky to be associated with as a singer. It happens every year, and hopefully my songs will be played as long as there is a Christmas to be celebrated. And to be associated with Christmas forever . . . I'm in heaven . . ." ~ Johnny Mathis ~

My Christmas music collection wouldn't be complete without this sublime Johnny Mathis CD, "Johnny Mathis Gold: A 50th Anniversary Christmas Celebration." This special Christmas compilation was released last year to coincide with his 50th Anniversary as an artist, a remarkable one at that! It's written on Liner Notes that Mr. Mathis has personally "selected his all-time favorite Yule tunes covering nearly 50 years of joyous holiday celebration including a new duet with Bette Midler."

I'm truly impressed with his flawlessly sublime renditions of "Silent Night" and "O Holy Night" with Percy Faith and His Orchestra. The heavenly chorus on "Silent Night" adds an old-fashioned Christmas feeling. I've heard a lot of interpretations for these top two seasonal favorites, but these are too beautiful for comparisons. The sacred renditions, divine arrangements and orchestrations are unmatched. Percy Faith was one of my late father's favorite orchestrators, arrangers and composers, who truly did some great and creative works of art to make this compilation outstanding. The rest of his works here can be heard in "Sleigh Ride," "The Christmas Song" and "Silver Bells.
